As soon as they arrived in Dubai, Gaël and Grâce were immersed in the historic and authentic side of the city. While waiting for the skyscrapers, extraordinary shows and dizzying activities, the couple began by discovering the ramparts of the old fishing town, before visiting the Shindagha museum, which recounts the life of the local inhabitants, and strolling through the narrow streets of the historic Al Fahidi district.
For a traditional experience, crossings by 'abra', a typical boat, allow you to navigate the Dubai Creek and visit the textile, spice and gold souks. Here, many things have left their mark, starting with the smell of spices, particularly curry, the star ingredient of Indian dishes. A lot of Pakistanis and Indians live in Dubai, a mix that really appealed to Grâce: "What we liked in this district were the colours, the smells, but also the close proximity of the religious buildings. You find a mosque opposite a Hindu temple and people live in harmony, it's a beautiful sight".
